In a not too far future, Steve Battier, a multimillionaire elderly and terminally ill, accepting the offer of a company - RPG - that in return for a high monetary value provides to a very restricted group of clients the possibility to become young again. During 10 hours, 10 millionaires around the world, men and women with fame and power, will be transferred to younger bodies, attractive and healthy to live in a temporary rejuvenation game, very real thrills, where in that every hour someone will die. In the body of a man of 23 years, returning to enjoy the pleasures of sex and experiencing the adrenaline of violence and power over life and death, Steve is willing to do anything to keep young forever... But not always what we have experienced is what appears to be. Written by
A failed attempt to make a Portuguese sci-fi movie. Portugal has to keep trying but not with this quality.
This attempt by Tino Navarro and David Rebordão to make a Portuguese sci-fi movie didn't go well.
The acting is bad. I've seen worse but in general it is bad. Some actors did well but not enough to save the movie.
The plot is simple. 10 old people pay to have their minds transfered to a new body to play a 10 hour game in which they fight for the chance to be young as long as they can. At each hour one of them has to die. This could be a good movie, but it missed the "good" part.
I didn't care for the characters! At all! I hate movies where I don't feel anything. I felt nothing in this movie. The camera was always shaking! You get used to it but it's annoying. And the whole movie was too predictable. The end wasn't, but I didn't like it anyway. And the movie had some flaws. But I'm not gonna point them. Don't wanna spoil anything (not that there's anything to spoil but yeah)
My opinion: Bad movie. Don't waste your money. Watch it at home if you're curious but don't expect much.
2/10. Not 1/10 because I liked the movie idea but unfortunately I hated everything else.
